A few more tips and comments on crispy tofu

  • Personally, I prefer to make this tofu recipe with up to 6 tablespoons of cornstarch because our son likes the tofu cubes extra crunchy. However, you can use less if you like.
  • Experiment with different herbs and spices. We also love diced tofu with turmeric and/or smoked paprika.
  • If you don’t want to use oil, you can leave it out, but the tofu will be crispier if you use it.
  • You can also substitute salt for the soy sauce or tamari.
  • Use firm or extra firm tofu for best results.
  • You can also replace or combine garlic powder with onion powder. But don’t leave it out 😉
